July 4, 2013 | Seoul, South Korea
Expansion reflects global demand for Quintiq's supply chain planning and optimization solutions

Quintiq, a global leader in supply chain planning and optimization (SCP&O), has opened a new office in Seoul, South Korea. Located in the central district of the city, Quintiq's new local presence will better serve the demand for logistics optimization solutions in South Korea. Quintiq's new location will allow for faster response to inquiries from South Korean companies interested in improving operational efficiency by implementing Quintiq's SCP&O platform.

Quintiq's expanding worldwide presence has led the company to be named the fourth largest supply chain planning company in global market share. By opening a new office in Seoul, Quintiq's South Korean customers have a direct, in-country access to Quintiq's personnel. According to Quintiq's customers in South Korea, which include the world leader in rolled aluminum products and the world-leader in aviation catering, the South Korean market is experiencing rising labor costs, increasing complexity within business operations and a growing competitive market, all of which increase demand for a planning platform that will have a positive impact on profit.

Quintiq offers a single platform for logistics, production and workforce planning. Quintiq's SCP&O platform is designed to be agile and flexible so it can be configured to a 100%-fit with a customer's planning processes and constraints today and as the business evolves over time.

"With local resources and highly skilled talent we have improved our ability to quickly and effectively meet the needs of our South Korean customers with high-touch, face-to-face service," said Kris Kosmala, vice president of Quintiq Asia Pacific. "Korea-based companies are increasingly turning to Quintiq not only to navigate complex market dynamics, but to gain a competitive industry edge. We look forward to continuing to help customers in this region and globally meet their SCP&O business goals."
